our environmental policies

Environmental policy statement

We believe that businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner.
We are therefore committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.
It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same. Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.

Our policy is to

  • Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice.
  • Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible.
  • Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.
  • As far as possible purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment and encourage others to do the same.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
  • Ensure that all employees understand our environmental policy and conform to the high standards it requires.
  • Address complaints about any breach of our Environmental Policy promptly and to the satisfaction of all concerned.
  • Update our Environmental Policy annually in consultation with staff, associates and customers.

Sustainability policy

Recycle as much waste material as possible.
Avoid the use of paper wherever possible. For example, sending invoices and quotes via email as PDF files.
Recycling equipment that is no longer of use to the company.
Keep energy usage low. For example, making use of low energy light bulbs throughout and ensuring that computers are shut down after work.
Reuse waste paper (from the printer) where possible, making use of the blank side for notes etc.
Purchase supplies from as many local suppliers as possible to ensure we reduce vehicles travelling long distances to the company thus reducing the pollution of fuels within the atmosphere and wear & tear of vehicles tyres etc.
Purchase food items that are humanly manufactured e.g. free range eggs.
